On Sat 15th and Sunday 16th July, Brighton YHA on the Old Steine will
present its first mindfulness weekend. Esteemed teacher Jon Wilde will be leading 1-hour introductory meditation/Q&A sessions throughout the two days, at 11am, 1pm and 4pm.
Sessions are completely free and require no membership or
equipment – just turn up!
Jon’s current career as a mindfulness teacher marks a sharp detour from his previous life as a cutting-edge freelance journalist. Through the 80s, working for Melody Maker and NME, he toured the world with the biggest rock bands of the era. In the 90s he was a founder member of the Loaded magazine team, specialising in hard-hitting interviews with hell-raisers like Oliver Reed, George Best and Richard Harris.
For the last ten years he has, most notably, kept himself busy interviewing a spectacularly long list of Hollywood A-list stars for The Mail On Sunday. In 2015 Jon became fully qualified as a mindfulness teacher, having trained with Sussex Partnership/NHS in Brighton & Hove.
In 2016 he set up Brighton Mindfulness Centre (BMC) in the heart of the
North Laine. The forthcoming mindfulness weekend in Brighton will mark the start of
a long-term collaboration between YHA and Brighton Mindfulness
Centre, with similar week-long events planned at some of the YHA’s 160
hostels across the UK.
